Netflix has released the official trailer for Mike Flanagan’s Midnight Mass that is scheduled to stream on the streamer on September 24, 2021.
The new trailer has revealed a lot of secrets about the plot. The film is essentially about faith and hope and is Flanagan’s most personal and favourite project to date.
The trailer shows a disgraced young man, played by Zach Gilford, returning to his isolated hometown where he had allegedly run over and killed a woman. Tormented by his grief and guilt, the man’s patience is put to the test by the arrival of a priest, played by Hamish Linklater, whose presence causes various miracles to take place.
However, most of these miracles involve a sinister supernatural force. Flanagan’s limited series is an exploration of man-made horrors and the madness and chaos that oblivious faith manifests.
The filmmaker, who is known for basing his previous two hit horror Netflix series, The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor on well-known novels, is delivering original work for the first time.
He is busy working on adapting Christopher Pike’s The Midnight Club and is famous for various horror films like Gerald’s Game, Doctor Sleep, Hush etc., where the horror results from both spatial and psychological realms.
Produced by Flanagan and Trevor Macy, the film stars some of his most frequent collaborators like his wife Kate Siegel, Henry Thomas, Rahul Kohli and more, besides Crystal Balint, Matt Biedel, Alex Essoe, Annarah Cymone, Annabeth Gish, Rahul Kohli, Kristin Lehman, Robert Longstreet, Igby Rigney, Samantha Sloyan and Michael Trucco.
